The Importance of Girls’ Education

By: Orshi Terhemba Ephraim.

Here at Day of the Girl and School Girls Unite, there is need to care a whole lot about girls’ education. There is need to spend time each day, week, month, year, helping girls all over the world, lobby to pass bills that help education, and creating events, like the Day of the Girl, to help promote education for girls.
     Now, why is education so important? Why don’t we just raise money to send food to our girls, or send them clothes, shoes and household items? Why do we spend so much time and effort to get, and keep, girls in school?
     Because school is the most useful thing we can give!
As much as you might think you hate school when you’re almost falling asleep in your last period class, nobody can deny that school opens more doors that we can imagine.
     School teaches you how to write, how to read, and how to do math. That knowledge, and a piece of paper we call a diploma, degree, and other qualifications, lets us have a career, earn money and raise a family. So, when you think that an estimated 101 million kids, more than half of whom are girls, don’t have an education, don’t have those opportunities, it makes you want to take a stand.
So, that’s exactly what we need to do. We need to understand that the importance and empowerment of school lasts much longer than a shoe or a dress. We still need to understand that school gives girls power to stand up for themselves, to make their own money, live their own lives.
     Many of the girls are trapped by poverty, arranged marriage, and abuse which they need help. Education is the shining beacon of light that can get them out. It can give them power to feed their families and help their community, and it can give them the strength to leave their abuser or go seek help. All of that power, all of that change, can come from school.
     That’s why there is need to work and strive not only to give girls, and boys, education. Because what we take for granted everyday, means a life changing opportunity for somebody else out there. And that is why education is important, and why we need to focus on it so much.

  8. I have been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, yet
    I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.
